Not concerning.  I'm talking about huge bruises from little to no trauma.

The biggest one on my leg is 1-1.5cm in diameter...on my arm are half that size...

I think it has smth to do with sinuses, most likely nothing serious.

Thank you all for support!

Today I woke up with some blood in my nose. Second time in 2 days I have nosebleed. Now I am scared of Leukemia...can it be the first symptom of it?

I don't want to go too much into leukemia symptoms because it will just freak you out more but a little bit of blood in your nose is not the kind of nosebleed you get with leukemia.

I was having nosebleeds all winter and of course it freaked me out, but finally I just started cramming globs of vaseline up my nose in an effort to stop the bleeding and keep things moist.  Well, it worked!  (Amazing what we'll try when we want a symptom to go away, isn't it?)  Most nosebleeds are caused by dry or scratched noses, or a blood vessel popped from sneezing or getting hit.

I won't freak out, 'cause I am very rational when someone explains something rationally to me. When I don't know a thing about something, currently leukemia, then my irrational mind is out of control. I didn't even get leukemia thoughts on Google, but I searched this forum and bunch of ppl said they are afraid of leukemia because of nosebleed, someone mentioned here bruises and fatigue my mind connected the dots and ding, ding, ding...you have cancer.

Well, I went to ENT...she said that she thinks it's some kind of infection, gave me some nose drops to put in nose and nose gel to prevent bleeding. I mentioned I saw smth about leukemia online, she didn't say anything, just laughed.

I wouldn't be concerned over mild isolated nose bleeds.  I would be concerned about evidence of an inability to clot which wouldn't just show up as a small amount of blood in your nose.

My GP laughed at me when I told her I thought I had MS - gotta love doctors! I think it's safe to say you're just fine. I've been having minor blood in my nose recently after not having a nose bleed since I was a kid! I've determined it's b/c it's been a long brutal winter so my nose was dry. Since the weather has warmed up I haven't seen any more blood (fingers crossed)! Do you feel relieved??

That and various other signs of an inability to clot such.  Isolated bleeding on one area of the body usually means something is going on in that area of the body...not something systemic.
